Mental Health In The Workplace and You

  • Poor Management: This is a huge thing in the workplace because the conflict between the employee and the manager can lead to high-stress levels. When a company has a poor work design, people are forced to do a job in a way they are uncomfortable with, leading to frustration and reduced productivity.
  • Toxic Work Culture: how can two work together except they agree? Employees need to get along with each other and their managers; when that doesn’t happen, it breeds toxicity which is bad for productivity. This and overworking employees leads to stress beyond comprehension, which is not supposed to be. One major problem is that people are working the same way they have been for the last 30 years; there’s no growth, no development, and no evolution.
  • Lack of Flexible working options: The world has drastically evolved, so should the workplace. If a 9–5 is not absolutely necessary, employees should at least close early, work from home at least twice a week, or develop a shift system. When employers refuse to be flexible with their workers, it leads to low employee engagement, withdrawal, low productivity, and extremely high turnover.
